On 60 exhibition panels, visitors were able to see and get familiar with the history of Serbian capital - prehistoric, Celtic, Roman, Slavic Medieval, Turkish and Austrian Belgrade. Panels presented the development of Belgrade chronologically and how Belgrade was being transformed from Turkish town into modern European city. They also narrated how many times Belgrade was conquered, liberated, bombed and how many times it rose from the ashes.
Photographs of modern Belgrade were followed by selected documents, engravings, charters, projects and old photographs preserved in the Historical Archives of Belgrade. Put together, they revealed Belgrade’s past, present and a vision of future Belgrade.
Working on this exhibition, authors wanted specifically to emphasize an immense contribution of the Russian people that left inerasable trace in the contemporary history of Belgrade, in the area of engineering, architecture, sculpture, ballet, set design and illustrations, and the biggest of all – liberation of Belgrade in 1944.
